This is a tender crop so don’t be tempted to plant them outside if frost is still forecast in your area.  Pot on in individual pots and gradually harden off to outside temperatures.

  • Once planted, young sweetcorn leaves can be munched on by slugs and snails so keep a lookout.
  • Keep weeds at bay too whilst the plants are young.
  • Sweetcorn may well need support if grown in exposed windy sites as they grow in height to around 2metres.  But in most gardens or containers, supports will not be needed.
  • Water well throughout the growing season to help with the production of plump and flavoursome cobs and juicy kernels.
  • A good indication Cobs are ready to pick is when the tassels that come out of the top of the cob turn brown.
